Frequent visitors to Discovery Park will notice some pretty big changes. Other changes are not so noticeable. The many improvements made by our volunteers and our partner, Great Basin Water Company, have made a big difference in this little jewel in the desert for all types of wildlife. Red Rock Audubon extends our deepest thanks to you.
A huge swath of Johnson grass was cut away leaving an open view of the running creek. Great for watching birds and other wildlife access the water
Permanent irrigation was installed on the area known as mesquite hill. A large number of volunteers over many days made this happen, clearing brush, digging trenches, laying irrigation pipe. All their work will help these trees thrive. New trees will be planted on May 2nd. If you are interested in helping out, please contact Carol Cantino at 775-727-0645.
The restroom was refurbished and cleaned. It will be open for volunteers on work days and during special events.
The pollinator garden has gotten some much needed attention clearing out weeds and invasive plants. Monarch butterflies have laid eggs on the native milkweeds planted there and if you are lucky you might see a caterpillar or two. Garden clean-ups are scheduled throughout May. Contact Carol Cantino for the schedule.
